A Perfect Getaway ~

A Perfect Get Away ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

In times of trouble,
we need a hideaway
a place we can go . . .
just to get away.

We need a retreat,
a place to de-stress
we need a refuge
so we can decompress.

In times of troubles,
we need a resort
a place where we can find
some Godly support.

We need a haven,
a shelter of protection
we need a sanctuary
a place for reflection.

In times of trouble,
we need a getaway
and God provides . . .
the perfect hideaway!

Psalm 46:1

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.”

Finding Peace ~

Finding Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today I took a sail,
on a quiet, restful sea
and soon tranquility
took a hold of me.

As I gently rocked,
I became aware
this is how it will be
when I haven’t me a care.

I laid back my head,
my face was to the sun
thinking what it’ll be like
when worry, I have none.

I closed my eyes tightly,
envisioning perfect bliss
and thought to myself
this world I’ll not miss.

Today I took a sail,
if only in my mind . . .
but God showed me His peace
is right here ~ for me to find!

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Spring’s Treat ~

Springtime Treat ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Springtime is,
such a treat . . .
rays of hope
now daily greet.

Sunny days,
now on the rise
fragrance tickles
nose and eyes

Spring’s melody,
ears now hear
the song it sings
now in full gear.

Spring brings.
such delight
bathing souls
in healing light.

Springtime is,
such a treat . . .
promising to all
a warm retreat!

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree;
When his branch is yet tender,
and putteth forth leaves, ye know
that summer is nigh:”

My Soul’s Retreat ~

myrefuge ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses
Whenever I am fearful,
disappointed or discouraged
I pray to my Father . . .
knowing I’ll be encouraged.

For prayer is my retreat,
a resting place for my soul
and whenever I let go . . .
it’s when God takes control.

The more I hang on to,
my sadness and my grief
the less He is able
to send His sweet relief.

Whenever I need a break,
I go to that hiding place
where alone with Him I pray
under the shelter of His grace.

Prayer is my sanctuary,
where God’s mercy I can find
it’s where eternal hope
takes over my heart and mind.

Whenever I need a retreat,
a quiet, peaceful place to go
I go to my Father . . .
and just let ~ my prayers flow!

Psalm 91:1-2

“He that dwelleth in the secret place
of the most High shall abide under
the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord,
He is my refuge and my fortress:
my God; in him will I trust.”

In You Lord ~

In You Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m learning to be content,
in whatever comes my way
because my Lord ~ my Savior
I trust You more every day.

Though my problems mount,
escalate and swell
it’s in You my Lord
I choose to wait and dwell.

As the enemy starts to roar,
rumbling for my defeat
it’s in You my Lord
I find my true retreat.

When my fears begin to rise,
tossing me all around.
it’s in You my Lord
I stand on solid ground.

While the storm rages,
reaching its height and peak
it is You ~ my Lord
my soul will always seek!

Psalm 31:24
King James Version

“Be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the Lord.”

My Hiding Place ~

My Hiding Place ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, You are my hiding place,
my harbor in any storm . . .
You are the only one I know
who keeps me from all harm.

You are my safe haven,
my retreat when I am weary
You are the only one I know
who my burdens will carry.

 You are my soul’s refuge,
my sanctuary when I need a break
You are the only one I know
who understands every ache.

 You are my hideaway,
my shelter when I need peace
You are the only one I know
who’s love for me will never cease.

Lord, You are my hiding place,
my port into which I sail . . .
You are the only one I know
whom will never disappoint or fail!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 32:7
King James Version

“Thou art my hiding place;
thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
thou shalt compass me about
 with songs of deliverance. Selah.”
